My TH arrived this morning and I have been going over the manuals and get familiar with all the switches and buttons. I then wanted to test out the camera so I turned on the ST-16 and then the TH. To my surprise, the camera was synced and ready to go in approx. 45 seconds. Some have said it takes up to 2 or 3 minutes to connect. Not so in my situation.

Everyone seems to have different results. Mine too takes about 45-60 seconds to connect. Still feels like an eternity lol.

The sync time never remains the same. Expect periods of no connection.

Mine was taking minutes to connect the camera.
I swapped to a 64 GB card in my H

I think it took about 10 minutes to connect to the camera this morning.

----------------

Thinking about it . . . . I used the same card yesterday and it connected within a minute.? ? ? ? ? ?
I wonder what's the cause?

----------------
Going off thread a bit: Has anyone noticed that if left in a hover it starts to wander and start a circular movement. Then if I move the stick it seems to " snatch "

I've had it a week and flown 5 times.
I've been flying a phantom 2 for over a year and have my PfAW from the CAA.

I find if you clear the card ( i use a 64) it seems to cut the camera boot and initialize time down for me at least..

Jim... that is called the "Toilet Bowl" effect. It is caused due to your compass conflicting with your GPS. Do a compass calibration and it will be fine... unless of course the compass is defective. I will be doing a video on this problem on my YouTube channel in future (happens to all drones that have a compass and GPS).

Hi captain drone.
I went to the same spot. ( about 50 yards away ) today and positioned the controller behind the drone a couple of feet.
It connected in under 2 minutes.
I did a compass calibration last week when i first got my H.

I'll do another next time out.

Cheers for that.


Jim
